    I checked for a known issue post for this but didn't find one. One of my recipe lenses has this warning:

    WARNING: There are one or more recipe capsules in this Hub, but this Hub will not appear as a recipe in search results

    Is there something I need to do to fix this?

      Do you have the "rating" module? I found it works if you put it nested in the ingredients module...

        Thank you. And, yes I did. It was not nested. Oddly enough I do so automatically on my regular modules.

      I had the same message on my microwave coconut fudge hub.
      It was a lens-let from Squidoo, with 3 capsules, photo, text and the recipe.

      I had to add more capsules to it, like video, poll more text, things like that and the warning sign eventually disappeared after working on it all day.

      Hope it works for you.

    The most likely reason for this is that you've used some of the minor recipe capsules but you haven't used the main one, which is the one with the recipe 'rich snippet' in it.  The rich snippet is what tells Google that it's a recipe.

    Unfortunately as I don't write recipes, I'm not sure which one that is!

    I transferred a bunch of recipe lenses. This error shows up when you're missing the rating module, OR when the rating module hasn't been edited to include the name of what's being rated, OR when you've added it, edited it, but haven't saved your hub yet. It's a very pesky error!

      Thanks for shedding light on it, lisavollrath. That's probably what did it.

      Sorry for all the posts, I didn't realize there were so many comments. I'm going through email.

    Thank you, Elsie. It did go away. I'd forgotten about it by the time I got finished with the edit.
